Liverpool Women manager Neil Redfearn Resigns After Heavy Defeat Vs Arsenal

Featured Image

Liverpool Women manager Neil Redfearn has resigned after just one league game in charge.

The former Leeds United and Rotherham United boss took over at the side in July after spending last season Doncaster Belles and was in the dugout as the new WSL season began last Saturday.

That game – an away trip to Arsenal Women – ended in a crushing 5-0 defeat and just six days later, the Reds have confirmed his exit from the club.

A statement on the Liverpool website read: “The club would like to thank Neil for his work in rebuilding the squad ahead of the 2018-19 season and wish him the best of luck for the future.”

Former Liverpool, Sheffield Wednesday and England goalkeeper Chris Kirkland, 37, has been named as caretaker boss.

He will be assisted by Vicky Jepson, who was appointed as a first-team coach in August.

Mnachester United Manager Jose Mourinho Blasts ‘Compulsive Liars’ In Defence Of Marcus Rashford

Featured Image

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho took aim at those questioning Marcus Rashford’s development

Here is what the Manchester United boss said when asked about  Marcus Rashford at the press conference previewing the trip to Watford.

Question: “Marcus is obviously banned for this weekend and the coming domestic games, but what did you make of his performances over the international break?”

Answer: “Speaking about Marcus, I think I can expect that Sunday I’m going to be highly criticised for not playing him tomorrow because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and some of them they have I think a problem with some compulsive lies.

“So, I can expect that Sunday some of them they will wake up in the morning and, as always, the first thing they think, that comes to their mind, is Jose Mourinho, so I can imagine on Sunday I am going to be criticised for not playing Marcus.

“But it is not my fault, he is suspended, so probably you should remind them that he is suspended, and he cannot play.

“Performances with England, of course, I’m happy.

“He played well, he competed well, he scored and especially in a period where he comes with some sadness after his suspension and it was very good that he did that.

“Ummm, if you don’t mind to lose a couple of minutes with me, I’m going to do something not for you but for the United fans because I think I hold myself to the United fans and for them, I am going to spend two minutes with you.

“On the season 16-17, Marcus Rashford played 32 Premier League matches, 11 Europa League matches, including the final, three FA Cup matches, six League Cup matches, including the final, and the Community Shield.

“He had 53 appearances but if you want to take to the minutes of play, he played 3,068 minutes and if you want to divide that by 90 minutes of the matches, he played 34.2 matches of 90 minutes on the 16-17.

“On the 17-18, he played 35 matches in the Premier League, eight in Champions League, five in FA Cup, including the final, three League Cup matches and the European Super Cup final.

“He played a total of 52 matches with 2,676 minutes. If you divide that by 90, it gives 29.7 matches.

“So, with me in two seasons, he had 105 appearances, 5,744 minutes, 63.7 matches of 90 minutes, including five finals, so the people that is speaking about his minutes I think they are a bit confused.

“Marcus Rashford is not Dominic Solanke, he’s not Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he’s not Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

“He’s Marcus Rashford, Manchester United player, with an incredible number of appearances and an incredible number of minutes played at the highest level in the best possible competitions.

“So, Manchester United supporters – for you and just for you – to know what we are doing with Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay, that’s what we are doing here.”

Question: “You or someone has done some research, it clearly irritates you that there is a perception about you…”

Answer: “It’s not a perception. You know some of the persons, everybody knows that they have double salaries.

“They work also for the clubs and when they work also for the clubs, of course, they are not independent and of course they conduct things in the direction they want to conduct things.

“That’s obvious and that’s human, and that’s natural. It’s not ethical but I accept, clearly.

“The ones that wake up in the morning and the first thing that comes into their mind is Jose Mourinho and Manchester United, I feel sorry for them because there are much more interesting things to wake up and to be happy in the morning (about) than to speak immediately about us and about football.

“But for the Manchester United supporters, I think it is important they have the right idea of how things are in reality.

“But the most important thing of all is that the kid is a good kid, the kid is a good player, he knows what Manchester United did for him.

“Starting in the academy, then Mr Van Gaal’s support, then my support and the club’s support, and the new contract and the new shirt, and being selected for every single match since I am here.

“Marcus Rashford was selected for every single match – he was never, never one day out of selection because of my decision, only if injured or, like in this, because he is suspended.

“He was never, never out of a selection, so he knows and that’s the most important thing.

“But, again, media is very important, and I think it’s very important the Manchester United supporters they know the truth.

“That’s why I’m going so specific about his numbers.”

No €250m Release Clause For Kevin De Bruyne At Manchester City – Pep Guardiola

Featured Image

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has clarified his previous comments relating to a potential release clause in the contract of Kevin De Bruyne.

Guardiola, speaking ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Fulham, appeared to suggest that De Bruyne had a buy-out clause of around £223m inserted into his current deal.

However, he said that he was merely insisting that De Bruyne would not be sold for that amount, and is currently unaware of any release clause in the 27-year-old’s contract.

“The journalist asked if we’d sell for £223m and I said ‘no’. I don’t think he has a release clause in his contract,” Guardiola told reporters.

De Bruyne was named City’s Player of the Year as Guardiola claimed his first Premier League title last season, setting a new points record for the division along the way.

Having reached the semi-finals of the World Cup with Belgium over the summer, De Bruyne was eased back into action as a substitute for City’s opening weekend clash at Arsenal but suffered a knee ligament injury in training the following week.

Mesut Ozil Should Keep His Starting Place Regardless Of His Performances – David Seaman

Featured Image

Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman believes Mesut Ozil should remain a regular starter for the club even if he doesn’t play well in every game because of his quality

Mesut Ozil has been a divisive figure among fans partly because of inconsistent performances and partly due to his negative body language during games.

After being named in Arsenal’s starting XI for their first Premier League game of the season – a 2-0 loss at home to Manchester City – Ozil was taken off in the second half of the 3-2 defeat at Chelsea in match-week two.

He was subsequently omitted from Arsenal’s squad against West Ham a week later amid reports of a training-ground bust-up with Emery,

The retired German international then started against Cardiff before the international break, playing 84 minutes before being substituted off with Arsenal winning 3-2,

Seaman believes that such is Ozil’s ability to influence a game, the playmaker should remain an automatic pick for Emery regardless of performances. 

“If you don’t play well then you will get singled out. That’s the way it is,” Seaman exclusively told Standard Sport when asked if Ozil is unfairly criticised.

“He doesn’t play well every game. I think a lot of fans expect him to play well every game when it’s impossible.

“He’s a quality player, there’s no doubt about that. Sometimes people think he doesn’t care, but that’s just his style. He does care – a lot.

“And he’s still got great qualities so, for me, he stays in the Arsenal team no problem.”

Report: Jose Mourinho Failed With Summer Bid For Leonardo Bonucci

Featured Image

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho reportedly failed in his attempt to sign Leonardo Bonucci during the summer transfer window.

The frustrated Jose Mourinho prioritised signing a centre-back during the off-season, only to miss out on several targets

United’s long-running pursuit of Harry Maguire was well known, as was their deadline-day approach for Diego Godin, but The Sun reports that another high-profile defender was also on Mourinho’s radar.

Bonucci instead returned to Juventus in a £31m transfer, though, a year after heading the opposite way, as United officials did not feel that he offered good value for money.

Arsenal Manager Unai Emery Tells Mesut Ozil To Step Up His Performances

Featured Image

Unai Emery has admitted that Mesut Ozil still has to improve and has called on the Arsenal midfielder to become more dominant in matches.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Newcastle United this weekend, Emery played down talk of a dispute with Mesut Ozil and insisted that he still has more to offer.

“I want to find with him the possibility to do the best, to make decisive passes, to do more near and in the box to score,” he told reporters. “He is working for the team to help us with his quality. But he is feeling like I am feeling.

“He can improve, he can do more. We will work, we will help him, give him the possibility on the pitch to be together, to find his qualities for us. He could feel different [after quitting Germany] but every day with us I look at him and he looks well and happy, working with our demands.

“He had a relaxing three days off at the weekend. Mesut works very well here. I look at him with the focus totally here. I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances.”

Arsenal face Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Saturday.

Team news…

“The best news is Fabregas. Fabregas now is very well. He’s training with the team during the week, so now he has only to improve his physical condition. I think that, in a few days or a week, he’ll be ready to play.

“So yesterday there were some problems with fever for Emerson and Zappacosta, and a little problem after the match with the national team for Loftus-Cheek, with the right tibia.

“I don’t know the situation today because I have to speak with the doctor. I don’t know if he’ll be able to play tomorrow – I’ll have to speak with the doctor and see the last training session.”

“I think that, at the moment, Fabregas can be available for the bench. But I want to speak to him. I think it’s maybe better to have two days of training.”

Could John Terry join your coaching staff?

“I don’t know… the last time I have spoken with him, he told me that he wants to play for another season. But I don’t know now the situation. I am talking about a week ago. I don’t know the situation. But Chelsea is his home, of course.”

So you would be open for him to come?

“Yes, of course. For sure, he will be a point of reference for me. For everybody here, I think.”

Is there a chance of it happening?

“I don’t know. He told me a lot of things, that he wants to play. I don’t know. I’d have to speak to him.”

Will you speak to Terry again, now he has turned down Spartak Moscow?

“No, it’s up to him. If he wants to play for another season, I think it’s right that he tries to play. But, if he wants to help us, I’m really very happy.”

Are you talking about bringing Terry back as a player or as a coach?

“I think in the coaching staff, I think. Because, as I said before, I want to give space to the young players. Fortunately, we have very strong young players: Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu… and I’d like to give them the right space.”

Why do you want him to be a coach here?

“Because, here, he’s a point of reference. Here is John Terry’s home. So he will be very important for everybody here. Only his presence.”

Would you ask him again next year?

“It’s up to him. It’s up to him. I am very open with him because he is the history of the club. He has won everything with the club, so it’s up to him.”

How impressed were you with Ethan Ampadu playing for Wales?

“I’m very happy for him. At the moment, for me, it’s not easy to give space to everyone. I have 28 players. But I hope, in the future, I think I will be able to give him space, to give a space to Hudson-Odoi, to Loftus-Cheek. They are very, very young and they are, for sure, the future of the club.”

What can he do to get into the side?

“In this first period, for me it was very important not to change especially the defensive line. But I hope in the future to be able to give space to everyone, even the defenders. In the first period, as you know, it’s very difficult to change the defensive line.”

What did you make of Neil Warnock’s comments over Tammy Abraham and Cardiff loan?

“I don’t know what to say. It was the player’s decision. Tammy, until two days before the deadline, wanted to stay here. On the last day there was an offer from Aston Villa and Tammy suddenly decided to go there. So I don’t know what to say about him.”

How has the international break been?

“I think it’s very difficult, very difficult for me and for every coach. I think also that FIFA has to change something for the national teams, because with four or five international breaks so long, it’s very difficult for us.

“Maybe the best thing to do is to put matches of the national teams at the end of the season.”

Did you go away?

“No, no, no. I stayed here all the time.”

Which teams can win the Premier League title?

“At the moment, I can answer Manchester City or Liverpool. At the moment.”

Can Chelsea?

“We need another step, I think, to be at the same level. I think so [that this season is too soon for Chelsea], I hope not. It’s very difficult to close a gap of 30 points at the beginning of the season. To close that gap in only one season is very difficult. But I think also we need to improve, and we can improve.”

How can you improve?

“Because my feeling is now we are not a very solid team in the defensive phase, of course. So I think we need to improve. And we can improve. My feeling during training is this team can improve.”

Cardiff a direct team…

“I think tomorrow will be a very difficult game because, mentally, the match after the break is always very difficult. Materially because we will play against a very physical team. So I think that, if we want to gain points, we need a very good performance tomorrow. It’s a difficult game for everybody to play against Cardiff, I think.”

Does it make it more difficult because people expect you to win?

“No, because, as I said, it’s very difficult materially. Tomorrow it’s very important for us to clear every ball, to play, to have a good distribution and good positions in the offensive phase, and to avoid counter-attacks. So, against a very physical team, a very aggressive side, I think it will be a very difficult test for us.”

Do you have any unusual fines? Watford have £100 per minute…

“I think it’s too much. £100 for every minute? That’s too much. As I said in every press conference, I think my players are professional.”

You father has told you to quit smoking, have you yet?

“At the moment, no. But my father told me to stop for the last 20 years, I think. He’s the only one who puts me in doubt, but unfortunately, at the moment, I am not able to stop.”

Would you like to stop?

“For one or two years, yes. No more. Then I’d like to start again.”

You said you would decide on full-time captain, has that been decided?

“No, no. I have my idea. I have decided, but I’d like to speak with the players before I tell you my decision. I’d like to space face to face to the club. At the moment, that’s not possible, so the captain is Azpilicueta. I’ll tell you the final decision after I have spoken to the players and the club.”

Twitter Feasts On Kemi Adeosun’s ‘Resignation’ Over NYSC Certificate Scandal

It’s Friday! A mini party is ongoing on Twitter and the theme is Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who is reported to have resigned from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Jose Mourinho Attacks Media With Barrage Of Rashford Statistics

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho turned on the media once more on Friday as he launched a detailed defence of his use of England international striker Marcus Rashford.

The 20-year-old forward impressed for the Three Lions over the international break as he started, and scored, against both Spain and Switzerland.

Ronaldo, Messi Top FIFA 19 Ratings As Neymar, De Gea, Hazard Make Top 10

That led to questions over whether Mourinho was making the most of Rashford’s abilities as he has struggled to hold down a regular place in the United side where he faces stiff competition from Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial.

Rashford will definitely be missing when Mourinho’s men travel to Watford on Saturday, though, as he begins a three-match ban after being sent-off against Burnley before the international break.

“I think I can expect that Sunday I’m going to be highly criticised for not playing him tomorrow because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and, some of them, they have I think a problem with some compulsive lies,” said Mourinho.

The Portuguese coach then reeled off a stream of statistics detailing Rashford’s 105 appearances in Mourinho’s first two seasons in charge before pointedly suggesting other managers should be quizzed for their use of young English players.

“Marcus Rashford is not (Liverpool forward) Dominic Solanke, he’s not (Chelsea midfielder) Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he’s not (Everton striker) Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

“He’s Marcus Rashford, Manchester United player, with an incredible number of appearances and an incredible number of minutes played at the highest level in the best possible competitions.”

Spurs Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris Banned For 20 Months

Mourinho has faced stinging criticism in the first few weeks of the season after defeats to Brighton and Tottenham saw the Red Devils lose ground on title rivals Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester City.

But despite righting the ship at Burnley and a two-week international break to ease the pressure, Mourinho again took aim at the press.

“The ones that wake up in the morning and the first thing that comes into their mind is Jose Mourinho and Manchester United, I feel sorry for them because there are much more interesting things to wake up and to be happy (about) in the morning than to speak immediately about us and about football.

“But for the Manchester United supporters, I think it is important they have the right idea of how things are in reality.”

Mourinho also confirmed left-back Luke Shaw could return to action at Vicarage Road just a week after suffering a concussion in England’s Nations League loss to Spain.

“Contrary to some news, to some opinions, by the protocol point of view and according to our doctor, he will be free to play,” added Mourinho.

“The only situation we have to analyse is if you are going to play him when during the week he was not training with the team.”

Victims Of Domestic Abuse Can Count On DVALI

Featured Image

In the past year, we’ve seen a significant rise in the number of people boldly speaking up and taking a stance against domestic violence.

On Sunday, September 16th, 2018, survivors, advocates, and supporters will celebrate another huge win for the cause as the Domestic Violence Assistance Line Initiative (DVALI) officially launches.

DVALI is an organization which aims to strengthen the fight against domestic violence by providing an avenue for victims to share their experiences and get the help they need. The assistance lines will be manned by survivors of domestic violence, as well as trained personnel and volunteers, who will help callers navigate their pain and angst.

The core belief of the initiative is that talking helps and is the first major step needed in order to claim one’s life back. Every call DVALI receives will be confidential, and no information will be shared with the public or anyone outside the organization.

This initiative was founded by Ms. Joyce Okungbowa, who having survived domestic violence, was inspired to create DVALI so no victim will feel as isolated as she felt, and to encourage more people to share their stories.

According to Ms. Joyce Okungbowa, “If Domestic Violence affects you or anyone within your circle, reach out today, as it could be a matter of life and death, which it often is – And please always remember … talking helps”

The Domestic Violence Assistance Lines Initiative will officially launch at the Lilygate Hotel, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.

Residents Ignore IPOB’s Sit-At-Home Order, Go About Normal Activities

Residents of Enugu state on Friday, September 14, went about their normal activities ignoring the Sit-At-Home order given by the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

 The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), which monitored the situation in the metropolis following the order, said that there were no signs of compliance as business premises were open, the roads busy with vehicular traffic and people were seen going about their activities.

Biafra: IPOB Declares Nationwide Strike On Sept 14

This, however, may not be unconnected with the security arrangement by the government of Enugu State and the security agencies that encouraged people to disregard the order and go about their businesses.

Bear in mind that the Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Mr Mohammad Danmallam, had told NAN that the security community in the South-East had made adequate aerial and land deployment to ensure the safety of citizens.

Danmallam said that the deployment was made at about 8pm on Thursday following a joint security meeting.

The joint security team comprises personnel of the Nigerian Army; Nigerian Air Force; Nigeria Police and Department of State Services.

Others are the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps; Nigerian Prisons Service; Federal Road Safety Corps, Nigeria Immigration ServicService and Nigeria Customs Service.

“The deployment of security personnel, vehicles, aircrafts and other logistics was to forestall the sit-at-home order across the South-East states by IPOB meant to take effect today (Friday),’’ he said.

Danmallam noted that security personnel had also been deployed to protect critical state and government infrastructure as well as public places.

He further added that “we already have our personnel, vehicles, surveillance aircrafts and other logistics out there.”

Mamman Nur: Boko Haram Factional Leader ‘Murdered’ By Own Fighters

Mamman Nur, the factional leader of the Boko Haram loyal to Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA), has been reportedly killed by his fighters who rebelled against him.

Daily Trust reports that Nur, the brain behind the ties between Boko Haram and the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi led Islamic State, was killed by his closest lieutenants on August 21.

20,336 Persons Murdered In South Africa In 365 Days

He had in 2014 led the rebellion against Abubakar Shekau, which saw the emergence of Abu Mus’ab Al-Barnawy faction of the group.

“Mamman Nur, who was killed on August 21, is the actual leader of the Boko Haram faction after they parted ways with Shekau,” a source was quoted as saying.

“He was meant to lead so that followers would remain committed to the cause championed by his late father but he (Nur) is the major link of the faction with the Islamic State; the chief strategist around Lake Chad, including their cells in Nigeria, Niger and Chad.”

Another source told the news outlet that Nur was killed after long period of disagreement with his subordinates who established “relative authority and contacts” over the years.

 He was said to be “not as rough as Shekau”.

“The commanders became disenchanted with Nur’s style of leadership; they saw him as not as rough as Shekau,” the source was quoted as saying.

“They followed him in staging the revolt because the argument back in 2014 was that Shekau was a hardliner who killed almost everyone, both Muslims and Christians who disagreed with his brand of Islam.

“But according to some of the fighters, after establishing his base in Lake Chad, Mamman Nur too ‘deviated from the real course’ and compromised on so many occasions,” he said.

The last straw in the strained relationship was said to be the release of the Dapchi schoolgirls.

The faction had kidnapped over 100 students from Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, and released all but one of them about a month later.

“The negotiation of the release of the girls did not go down well with some close associates of Mamman Nur who released the girls unconditionally, following a directive by Al-Baghdadi,” the paper quoted the source as saying.

“Nothing was paid before the girls were released and besides, Mamman Nur’s soft approach and close contact to governments and different levels angered his foot soldiers who rebelled against him and thereafter executed him.”

Nigeria Seizes 436 PVCs, 192 National ID Slips From Foreigners

Nigeria Seizes 436 PVCs, 192 National ID Slips From Foreigners

The Katsina State Command of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), on Thursday, said it seized 436 voter cards and 192 national identity slips from foreigners in the second and third quarters of the year.

The state controller of immigration, Joshua Ajisafe, who stated this in Katsina, said 729 irregular migrants were repatriated by the command in the period under review.

Mr Ajisafe spoke at the inauguration of the NIS operational border patrol base at Mazanya, a border community in Jibiya Local Government Area of the state.

He said the command also intercepted 10 suspected human traffickers and rescued 162 victims of human trafficking in the period under review.

Katsina hosts an estimated 203 km borderline with Niger Republic, according to the controller, making it a major illegal trans-border migration route in the country.

According to him, this explains why it is the most populous state command of the NIS in terms of manpower, with 1,035 officers and men stationed there.

“The command was able to curtail the influx of irregular immigrants with the help of border corps officers deployed to man some of the illegal routes.

“The establishment of the two hinterland checkpoints at Charanchi and Kankara highways in the state also helped in this regard,” he said.

He said within the period, the command denied 1,203 foreigners admission into the country for lack of travel documents, while 411 Nigerians were refused departure for not having valid travel documents.

Here’s What INEC Said On Postponement Of 2019 General Elections

The controller disclosed that the command recorded the arrival of 176,724 valid travel document holders and departure of 49,780 others in the period.

Mr Ajisafe attributed the modest achievements largely to support from the NIS headquarters and effective synergy with sister security agencies in the state.

Nigeria Reacts As Labour Issues 14-Day Ultimatum On Minimum Wage

Nigeria Reacts As Labour Issues 14-Day Ultimatum On Minimum Wage

The Federal Government has described the 14-day ultimatum issued by the organised labour as “a subtle blackmail” to stampede the Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage.

Buhari Appoints Yusuf Bichi As New DG For DSS

Sen. Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, made this known at a news conference on Thursday in Abuja, noting that the ultimatum was uncalled for.

The organised labour had issued a 14-day ultimatum to the Federal Government, to allow the tripartite committee conclude its work on the new national minimum wage.

The Labour leaders gave the ultimatum on Wednesday, stating that the National Minimum Wage Committee commenced work in March 2018 with timelines to deliver on its mandate by August/ September 2018.

They accused Ngige of delaying the process of arriving at a new minimum wage which workers had been expecting since 2016.

The union also accused the Federal Government of stalling the negotiation by failing to mention a figure as a new minimum wage for the Nigerian workers.

Illegal Detention: DSS Ordered To Pay N10.5m To Journalist Jones Abiri

However, the minister has said it is not true that the Federal Government is trying to stall negotiations.

“The following facts speak in that direction, if the Federal Government is not interested why did Mr President inaugurate the Presidential Committee on the new National Minimum Wage.

“If it is not interested, Mr President would have asked me to do an inter-ministerial meeting, but Mr President took interest and set up a presidential committee.

“This Presidential Committee, he monitors it and I also brief him from time to time, both written and verbally.

“As a matter of fact, before the meeting adjourned last week, I have told the committee that the Economic Management Team could not hold.

This is due to the fact that most people in the team travelled with Mr President to China.

“Also if the Federal Government is not interested, why will l brief the entire tripartite committee and tell them that work is in progress, “he said.

The minister also noted that he had requested for two weeks from the committee to enable the Federal Government delegation consult with state government delegation.

“That means that the meeting can be called at any time, in one day or within three days which is still stipulated within the month of September.

“So it is very surprising to know that labour gave an ultimatum of 14 days to the Federal Government, this is uncalled for and a subtle blackmail to the Federal Government.”
